According to the CDC, over 780 million people do not have access to an improved water source (protected from contamination). In an effort to address this problem, our team has ideated a water storage tank and filtration system which can be utilized to filter water from local freshwater sources and water from rain collection.
The tank will consist of two horizontal compartments. The top chamber will hold dirty water, which will then be filtered and held in the bottom chamber. Users will be able to pour water into the upper compartment from access ports located at the top of the tank. In addition, a funnel can be attached at the top of the water tank in order to catch and store rainwater. Water will be accessible from a tap at the base of the tank.
